Swallow Barn - The Milking Parlour

  Rooms: 2

Prices From £⁠120 

A place to relax, enjoy the countryside, walk, run, mountain bike, motorbike.

 

We want to encourage those who enjoy the outdoors to come and visit the Welsh Valleys and experience what it has to offer. With Bike Park Wales and the Brecon Beacons National Park on our doorstep there is plenty to do and the farm is surrounded by endless countryside.

 

Craig and Tamsin spent three years lovingly renovating the Grade II-listed Welsh longhouse where the bell tents are located. They are both passionate mountain bikers and off-road motorcyclists—both have finished the Dakar rally—and they regularly compete in international events.

 

A beautifully converted cow barn with a mezzanine floor and open plan kitchen/diner/living space.

 

Each stay includes our welcome pack, tea/coffee and a tasty Welsh treat.

 

We are located in Quakers Yard, which is steeped in Welsh history – the farm dates back to the 1600s and was a safe house for the dissenting Quakers at the time to meet to avoid persecution. Many of those early Quakers then went on to set up home in Pennsylvania.

 

The views from the farm are spectacular and the tents are near to a working sheep farm. The barns are also home to an amazing array of birdlife, swallows and wagtails are a common sight in the summer.
